You might remember these paper flags in a recent post that were used in all different parts of my brother's and best friend's wedding:
Well, on a recent trip to visit them, I helped put together this post-wedding memento:
It was easy to make.
First we trimmed down the flags so that they would fit the frame.
Next, using paint and a sponge brush, we stenciled their wedding date onto the flags.
Then, we spaced them out on some burlap...
...and added a thick rope to the top of the flags.
Everything was glued down using a hot glue gun.
Lastly, I added their initials to the mat.
I think it turned out great and it is a nice reminder of their wedding day.
And just in case my brother ever forgets their anniversary,
all he has to do is look at this frame!
